Another leopard accidentally fell into an open well in Sankhavadar village of Junagadh district on Sunday morning. The animal was saved in time by forest offcials who rescued it. According to reports, the leopard fell in to the well while chasing its prey at a farm in the outskirts of the village. Luckily for the beast, the noise of its splash alerted farm labourers working in the vicinity, who called the forest department. The officials brought the leopard out of the well and admitted it to the Sakkarbaug zoo for treatment. The animal will be released in the natural habitat in a couple of days' time. The open wells are posing a big threat to wild animals across Saurashtra. The wells, specially in the Gir forest, have claimed many lives of wild animals.
